What will I learn?

The College of Engineering launched the Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Maritime Studies in July 2004. The programme focuses primarily on tertiary education in shipping, business, management, and maritime science and technology, to build up the expertise of the local shipping industry as well as working towards establishing Singapore as a centre of excellence for shipping business, research and development.

Starting in August 2008, the Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Maritime Studies with Business Major would be offered jointly by the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Nanyang Business School. These programmes are targeted for suitable candidates with GCE A-levels, IB, and diploma holders who have relevant qualifications.

With effect from August 2015, International Trading would be offered to the Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Maritime Studies, and Bachelor of Science (Hon) degree with Second Major in Business as an additional specialization. This programme will allow graduates to enhance competitive advantage for career opportunities in the Industries of International Trading.

The programme structure is flexible and broad-based. Students will complete one semester in the third year of their studies at our overseas partner university. The curriculum also includes Professional Internship where students will be attached to organisations in shipping and related industries.
